Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re: Damn, that was close . . .

Just catching up on old emails and lists.

But I gotta say the Russell seat on my GTL is still more comfortable than my office chair.

Was that animated or real? Were you recording it? If I was riding behind there I would have had to take a few hours of break to refocus.

In Sacramento does "break to refocus" mean change to clean underwear?

Re: Damn, that was close . . .

I personally would have left the roadway to avoid hitting the motorcycle...

But, Nice recovery for the driver of the Hack ! I wonder if it was still driveable...
Probably bent all to hell and gone.. Frame on the bike too....

Somebody didn't have their situational awareness turned on...
